Introduction to the Bay of Fires
Located on the northeastern coast of Tasmania with a gorgeous coastline that stretches over 50 kilometers, Bay of Fires, home to one of the world's most magnificent beaches, is not to be missed on your Tasmanian getaway. There's a reason why 'Lonely Planet' (Australian travel guide publisher) labeled it the world's top tourist destination.
The Bay of Fires was named by English navigator Tobias Furneaux in 1773 when he witnessed fires lit by the Palawa - Tasmanian Aboriginal community along the coast. Appropriately, the Larapuna region, which encompasses the Bay of Fires, is the site of one of Tasmania's earliest Aboriginal tourism projects.
